A man in the woods.
Quinn Burke
I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of CSE at The Pennsylvania State University and a research assistant in the Systems and Internet Infrastructure Security Laboratory, advised by Prof. Patrick McDaniel. My research interests are in network and systems security. In current work, I am exploring how software-defined networks are vulnerable to novel classes of attacks and how new trusted computing primitives can be leveraged to prevent them and build more secure systems.
